Cucumber Trellis

Here's a picture of my cucumber pot today~ there are some sticks for the beginning trellis and yesterday I added the metal swirl (bent from a coat hanger) which the Boston cuke has already grabbed on to with a few vines. Tomorrow I plan to hike out into the woods to find some more branches for a natural trellis~ I love the way it looks and its free!

To be honest I am not a huge fan of cucumbers, so I look forward to trying different pickle recipes in the future~ especially spicy pickles with some jalapenos we grow!

Now I am trying to decide if we have space for a worm composting bin because I plan to garden winter plants as well, and hopefully keep it going in the containers until I own land to do what I want and create more permanent structures.

  1. Oh, my teeny basil plants are so funny - they are trying so hard to grow - I have some coleus flowers that are coming up & are making up for being planted late..maybe we should exchange goodies for a good batch of sauce ~!~ Tee hee!!
